At Dubai International (DXB), the holiday season has landed, with millions of customers travel through the doors for the winter break. Luckily the airports’ restaurants and shops are ready to bring on the festive cheer.


To mark the start of the busy period, the stage will be set with jingle bells at Concourse B for local artists Danny Aridi, who will perform on December 12 (11pm – 1am) and Pimms Brooke who will make her musicDXB debut on December 14 (11pm-1am).

The following weekend DXB’s Resident DJs, Hollaphonic, will fill Concourse D with party tunes and, upon special request, even a bit of Mariah to really start the party. There’s also a festive DJ performance at The Daily DXB in Concourse B on Christmas Eve (December 24).

Grab a bite

Whether seeking out an early traditional dinner, or a sweet festive treat, customers at DXB will find something to suit all taste buds.

Jack’s Bar & Grill (Concourse A) and The Draft House (Concourse D) will be serving a gourmet roast turkey meal with all the trimmings.  With turkey burgers filled with cranberry sauce will be on offer at Giraffe World Kitchen (Concourse A).

Families looking to enjoy the holiday season with little ones should follow the aromas of gingerbread to Costa Coffee (Concourse A, B, C &D) for a festive favourite gingerbread latte or visit The Daily DXB (Concourse B) for a pumpkin spiced latte next to the twinkling tree.

There is also Christmas themed menu items at The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck, Hard Rock Cafe, FIX, Tranzeet, S34, Treehouse Juicery, Flour + Stone and Jones the Grocer, so no excuse not to indulge.

What’s more, a brand-new Marks & Spencer pop-up store is now open in B-Gates, complete with a wintry fireplace and a full range of festive treats.
